Blogs are very popular ways of promoting your product or service. They are easy to install, easy to administer, and easy to update. And search engines love them too. But what is a blog without traffic?
Here are five quick ways to boost traffic to your blog and start seeing those big sales.
5 Ways To Increase Traffic To Your Blog
1 – Build a list of blog services to ping
There are a lot of blog services you can ping. This means that you notify this service that you’ve updated your blog. These services then list your new posts, and you get the traffic from them.
I’ve made a list of 50+ blog services you can ping on my site. These lists are also available if you search google or any other search engine for it. That should be enough to give an initial boost to your traffic.
What does this mean? There are sites like yahoo or google, or Bloglines, which have a members area where you can select sites with RSS feeds to fetch the latest updates from different blogs.
That way, you can have the latest updates from, let’s say, 50 blogs listed on one page. I have a list of these popular pages on my website, plus the buttons which link to them. Users can then easily add my blog to their newsreader members’ area.
3 – Update your content regularly
Search engines and blog services love regular updates. You will likely get targeted traffic from search engines if you post regularly.
That means you should make a new post to your blog at least once per day. But be careful. Too many updates per day can harm your search engine’s position and hits.
What’s too many? Ten or more.
4 – Post in forums
Post in forums, but don’t spam them. Post something fresh and exciting and put a link to your blog in your signature. Don’t just post in any forum.
For example, if you’re selling CDs, post in forums that are about music and CDs. Don’t post in car forums if you’re selling furniture.
By posting in forums, you will get one-way links suitable for search engine positions in search engines like google or MSN, or yahoo.
5 – Submit to blog search engines
There are masses of search engines available that list only blogs. Just google for blog search engines, and you should find at least 20 of them.
These blog search engines will help you with targeted traffic. Be sure to write a good title and a good description for your blog so that people will easily find it and click on your link.
Follow these five steps, and you will start seeing lots of traffic to your blog. And the so long-awaited sales will start coming in. Don’t forget to update your blog with fresh unused content that you write yourself.
